1. What has led you to a career in real estate?
My brother introduced me to real estate two years ago and I immediately fell in love with it. The industry provided me with the opportunity to meet people I otherwise would never be able to meet. This career is perfect for me because I can socialize not only with clients but also with potential partners, which has boosted my professional network.
2. Describe your experience so far in Colliers?
Fun, exciting, collaborative, and every day you learn something new from different people.
3. What is the biggest risk you have ever taken?
When I left the corporate world to focus completely on freelancing for 3 years. The risk I took allowed me to be more confident of myself and it enabled me to think critically during stressful situations.
4. Do you have a role model you look up to and who has changed your life?
Steve Harvey, because like me he also experienced jumping from one work to another until he found his niche and became really good at it. Now he is one of the world’s most successful comedians. But even though he is already successful, he keeps on moving forward no matter the challenges he encounters along the way. In one of his interviews, he said: “If you want to be successful, you have to jump, there’s no way around it. When you jump, I can assure you that your parachute will not open right away. But if you do not jump, your parachute will never open. If you’re safe, you’ll never soar.”
5. Once the pandemic is over, what is the first place you would travel to and why?
I would love to travel back to Sagada, because it is really peaceful there, people there are extremely friendly, and it is far away from the noise of Metro Manila. It is really a great place to relax.
